Half Price Burgers During Bear Games

We were bored one Sunday and somehow managed to end up at Hackney's on Lake. The burgers are good along with the fried onions. Service is good and quick. We liked it so much we went back on the next 3 or 4 Sundays. The bar area is a little tight with 3 two toppers and one 4 topper, unless... read more

I forgot just how good the French Fried Onion Loaf is. I forgot how good the fresh-baked bread is. I thought I remembered how good the burger was - but it was better.

We had a group of eighteen friends for dinner one Friday night. We made arrangements in advance for a private room for our group. We ordered off the menu and one server was assigned to us for drinks and taking our food orders. The fried onions were ordered before the main meal as an appetizer. When the food was served... More

Considering the many options to get a good burger...I would avoid this place. We ordered our burgers to be cooked medium and we recieved two over cooked, well dones charred pieces of meat. Could even finish it. The rye bread was burnt as well...fries where ice cold and they forgot our onion rings. Terrible.

Great small chain. This unit is their biggest. Hamburger on DAR RYE is their signature offering. Try the Harms unit only blocks away, the original unit, small but cozy and a really great patio in the summer.

Ordered ribs and I must say they were terrible. Came out burnt and covered with sauce that was enough to float a battle ship. I had to take a napkin to get rid of the sauce which was also terrible. The order was for a full order after finished half the order I sent back the rest. I have been... More

The restaurant is known for its hamburgers on black bread as well as its corned beef. However, it serves a variety of food and appetizers and is very popular for group gatherings and family dinners. It has multiple rooms both upstairs and downstairs and its bar area is filled with sports fans.

Hackneys on Lake is a long established restaurant in Glenview, Il. The owner and her family are there daily and greet everyone in a friendly manner. The specials are changed daily and reasonably priced. Although Hackneys is famed for their burgers and onion loaves their menu offers a lot of choices. The bar area is large and very comfortable and... More
